2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Surprising tap at The Fickle Peach, at least this was served in a snifter and looked very pretty... however I will keep this short and sweet (get it)... way too sweet and way too boozy. An utter maple overblown mess and it took me over a hour to finish the 8 ounce snifter. Well at least I know not to track down a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Westmeister! Thanks brother! Light copper orange. Nose is maple syrup, sweet malts, light toffee, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavors of wheat, biscuit, light orange citrus. Hot. Finishes with a slight astringency as it warms that I have come to find in beers with maple syrup, but over all very sweet, and a sipper to split with a friend or two. Will revisit in a year or so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh bottle. Pours honey gold with nice head. Aroma is alcohol, hay. Taste is boozy...lots of bourbon notes with the maple syrup kicker. Not as sweet as I expected. The wheat characteristics give it nice balance and character. I’m a fan.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Kansas City. Comes reddish brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, dark fruit, and caramel. Taste is sweet malt, bourbon, dark fruit, caramel, and a touch of maple. Very sweet, almost too much so.

Bottle shared by Brett, Thanks man. The label is exactly right, sweet. man this is a sweet beer. No shock but the barrel is present nice and vanilla like flavors with a touch of bourbon heat, but that is quickly squashed by the sweetness. just pow sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at The Happy Gnome. Honey, thick caramel, and fumes. Hazy golden amber color. Initial has really thick caramel, concentrated and super sweet / maple emerges in mid, long with considerable alc. warmth / reaches a sort of balance in finish, though the tongue is probably burned and shocked by that point. Heavy body, a bit sticky. The maple is not overwhelming and the wheat keeps it lighter than most beers of this strength.

Shared at Hunahpu ’14. Brown pour. Aroma was sugary and woody. Tastes were big and sweet -- toffee, caramel, cereal. Bit boozy. Too much brown sugar for my tastes. 6.6
